Girls trips are a definite must, especially when they are located only a short 25 minute drive away! I was so excited to get to stay at the Gaylord Rockies Resort last weekend with three of my favorite blogger babes (Madison, Ally, and Laura). This place was so amazing I felt like I had traveled to a remote destination for a relaxing weekend, when in reality it was basically in my own backyard! 

First up on the list was the Relache Spa for facials and mani pedis! Madison and I opted for the facials and got to change into the comfiest robes and slippers and headed back for our one hour treatment. I was so impressed with how attentive every staff member at the spa was; they made it their top priority to make sure we had the best experience possible. After our facials (which were amazing) we were escorted to the coziest room filled with a fireplace, comfy couches, and the cutest little cabanas. The staff then brought us hot towels and champagne...I literally thought I was in heaven! 

After an afternoon of getting pampered we checked into our rooms to get ready for dinner! It was no surprise that the rooms were just as amazing as everything else we had already experienced. They left no detail behind with the rustic Colorado cabin feel, and the beds were super comfy!

Before dinner we headed for drinks at the Mountain Pass Sports Bar. This place is a guys dream, with comfy leather chairs and a 75-foot TV to watch sports. 

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to dining, but we decided on Sushi at Monte Jade. It was such a good choice, the food and service were amazing and we even indulged ourselves and got a chocolate cake for dessert! 

One of my favorite amenities at this hotel is the giant heated pool and hot tubs! Even though there was still some snow on the ground, we braved the cold for some photo ops (typical bloggers) and then dipped our feet in the pool to warm up! The water felt so amazing, and I can't wait to go back when it's warmer.

We wrapped up our blogger staycation with my favorite meal of the day...brunch! We went to Vista Montagne and loaded our plates with their express breakfast buffet, which was amazing! My favorite was the french toast and bacon! As you can see below, we are bloggers who like to eat, but we tried to balance out all the carbs with some fruit...and it helped add a little color to our plates! 

I am already planning my next staycation and can't wait to bring the hubs to experience this amazing resort! If you are in Denver, or coming from out of town you should stay a night at The Gaylord, you won't regret it!
